The Mighty Macs 2011

The Mighty Macs

Critics Consensus

Its heart is obviously in the right place, but The Mighty Macs is too blandly formulaic to transcend the genre's many clichés.

Movie Info

In 1971, Immaculata College finds a new coach, Cathy Rush (Carla Gugino), to head its women's basketball team. Right from the start, Cathy faces an uphill battle at the tiny, all-women's school -- with little support from Mother St. John (Ellen Burstyn). There's no gymnasium on campus, no uniforms, and there might not even be enough players to field a team. With help from a spunky assistant and a booster club of elderly nuns, Cathy sets out to achieve the impossible.

    I love a good sports movie but this one was too bland and the coach said one too many cliches.

    Trite and derivative.

    Nice sports movie. Typical "root for the underdog" type, but well done. I have always liked Ellen Burstyn. She seems to really know how to pick decent movies to be in...this one is no exception.
